In recent years, evolution, the most powerful theory in the life sciences, has been applied to academic questions that span across all islands of academia. From anthropology to literary studies to art to biology to geology to psychology and more! Much of the center of this work has taken place at SUNY Institutions, including the work of Bingham and Souza at Stonybrook, the work of Gallup at Albany, the work of Geher and the Evolutionary Studies (EvoS) program at New Paltz, and, of course, the work of David Sloan Wilson at Binghamton – where the first-ever undergraduate EvoS program was created nearly a decade ago. And much of this work was strongly catalyzed by Rosemarie Sokol Chang’s lead role in developing the international EvoS Consortium, supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

This conference highlighted how far these EvoS-related initiatives have come!
Host: Glenn Geher
